Bill Moyers-The Democracy Promise

Bill Moyers, Mark Green, Michael Waldman

A quick note to document my attending the New Democracy Project forum, "The Democracy Promise: 40 Ideas to Strengthen American Democracy" -- Held on Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2006, at NYU's Kimmel Center near Washington Square here in New York City, the forum featured as keynote speaker the marvelous Bill Moyers. I missed the opening reception but heard Bill and some terrific others, including Michael Waldman of the Brennan Center, Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation, Miles Rapoport and a vibrant young woman from Demos, and of course Mark Green of the New Democracy Project who was the guiding force behind the event.

The evening invites a lot more action and follow-up and I had hoped to post a link to the speeches and action ideas presented but the holidays are keeping all of us busy and Mark's site promises us more in early 2007. In the meantime I will post a picture and we can all keep our eyes out for the official documentation to be posted at New Democracy Project.

Peace hugs,
Kate Anne
